Halloween is in the Air

It may be July but I'm on a Halloween kick. It all started with a witch which I haven't started hooking yet because I need to dye the wool, but I ordered I've Got You My Pretty from The Old Tattered Flag and hooked it in a week. I used an 8 1/2 cut so it hooked up quickly.
I am not quite finished binding in this picture but I wanted to show you my clips. I saw them on facebook and immediately ordered them to try. Talk about cutting out steps! Instead of basting the rolled edge by hand, I just rolled it, clipped it, and started binding. Of course I did zigzag the outside edge first. The clips are called Wonder Clips by WowCrafts and there are 50 of them in the little jar. I bought mine from Amazon but they also have them at Searsport Rug Hooking

Another pattern I bought was from Betsy Reed at Heavens to Betsy that is a black cat with a hat pillow. It is almost done so I'll be showing it soon!

Your rug hooked up beautifully! I think that once the Summer reaches maximum heat and humidity, we start to crave that "cool crispness" that fall offers... :-)
